Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Release Date & Details

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered release date is potentially coming soon, which could bring a major upgrade for gamers looking to enjoy a classic Call of Duty game without the slower play that comes in Call of Duty: WWII. Thankfully you will not need to wait for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 to get your hands on this remaster.

Recently a listing for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered game appeared on Amazon for the PS4 and Xbox One. Amazon pulled the listing with no explanation, so this is not confirmed. Fans demanded a Modern Warfare 2 remake as far back as 2015 and a petition for the game has at over 200,000 signatures.

In 2016 Activision bundled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered with special edition of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, later selling it as a standalone game for $40 in 2017.

This is what you need to know about the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered release date and potential upgrades.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Release Date

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered release date is April 30th according to the now pulled Amazon listing. This is an odd time frame for a remastered version of a game made by Infinity Ward since they are not making the 2018 Call fo Duty game. That goes to Treyarch with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which will be unveiled in more detail on May 17th.

If this is a real leak and not just a placeholder mistake we expect to see more information about the game in the very near future. the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare developers recently talked about “making 2019 VERY special.” on Twitter, but it wouldn’t make sense for this to be something that is delayed until 2019.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Price

The Amazon listing for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered game lists the price as about $25 U.S., which is low for a standalone remaster compared to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered in 2017.

Perhaps groundwork was already done on the upgrade when Infinity Ward worked on the Modern Warfare 2 remaster, but the games used two versions of the IW Engine, so it’s not clear how much carry over there will be from one game to the next.

With new reports indicating this is the single player mode only, there is a good chance this price is correct.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Graphics
